Bible Term: Law of Moses

The Law of Moses is more correctly the Law of God, which God revealed to Moses. Although this law came from God, it’s sometimes attributed to Moses as he was the one who documented it and communicated it to the Israelites.

The Law of Moses is recorded in the books of Leviticus and Deuteronomy, forming the basis of belief for the Jewish people.

Jesus, however, came to fulfill this law (Matthew 5:17).
